Welcome to That Old House

Thank you for finding That Old House amidst the chaos of the Internet.
This blog named itself. When I tell local people where we live, they almost always say, "Oh! You live in that old house!"
We do, and I'm glad you've come to visit -- Cass

Falling For Autumn Tablescapes

I'm culling pictures today from my Blogger files:
old favorite Fall table settings from posts past.
I'm a little sleepy and a little groggy from the Percocet the doctor prescribed for me.
I had a suspicious thingy taken off my arm yesterday.
My daughter Annie has taken on the role of making sure I do what the doctor said.
She's a tough boss.

What follows are some favorite pictures of table settings done in September or October, '09 to '11.
No big explanations; if you are interested in seeing more of any particular table,
click where it says "click" under the picture.  Doh.  Bet you could figure that out for yourself, huh?

Now I'll shut up.  Which is hard for me.






And that's all for today.
Tomorrow?   A look at some auction furniture.
And the recipe for my mother-in-law's Cheater's Cake.
Which I just may have a slice of this afternoon;
Annie baked one yesterday.  Comfort food, y'know.  -- Cass

One Creative Weekend Week 12 Features


  1. Oh yes.... Thanksgiving. There begins the season of putting on 10-120 pounds... bleh. I must search for some healthy recipes this year.

  2. And I know the secret of the "cheater's cake"! HAH! Lovely tables all -- but then your tables always are. Percocet -- it's a good thing. Taskmaster Daughters -- they're a good thing. Taking percocet and being looked after by a Taskmaster Daughter -- Priceless! (Can you say priceless on percocet?)

    Take care dear friend -- always love your tables!

  3. Hope your suspicious thing is not that suspicious after all. I hope your Cheater's Cake is as good as it sounds. I'm getting hungry just imagining it.

  4. Lovely tables !I liked all the dishes !Thank you so much for your kind
    comment and for your advice !

  5. Gee, Cass. Hope your reports come back nice and clean. Cheater's Cake? You really are a tease.....or is it the Percocet doing the dirty deed? Take care and let Annie do the dishes.

  6. I also hope the suspicious thing turns out to be nothing to worry about.
    Mind Anne and do what the Doc says. :D
    Have a great weekend.
